I love quilting and I have plenty of material witnesses.

This photo is a testimonial to what happens when you are so busy running around that you miss things. Well, I was dashing here and there with my on the go sewing basket.A BRAND NEW
spool of Aurifil thread managed to jump out of the basket and onto the driveway. Guess who backed right over the little sucker! ME. Squished, Squashed, I think the back part of the spool is somewhere in Panama City Florida. DANG! a PERFECTLY NEW spool of NOT SO CHEAP neutral thread is now going to be used for sewing binding…and lots of it. This is what happens when you are in such a hurry you don’t pay attention to what is going on …..right?

Well that is not the only thing. I have dropped and broken 3 glasses/plates etc because I am speed cleaning everything. I simply need to slow down.

The patterns are written and off to be proofed. The quilts are finished and ready for photography. Today I am finishing my new logo and banner for my booth. I started it a couple of weeks ago and never got back to completing it. Sound familiar? It is going to be really cute I’m happy with the look. I’ll take a pic when I’m done. Here is one in the making..

Emily comes home tonight! yippee I wish Mary Beth could be here but she is up to her…in studying. Finals are next week! But I get to have her sleepin in her own bed alllll summer. I’ll be a happy mom then!

I have been enjoying cooking again. The knee is better and the kitchen is happy to have me return. I made some really good salmon the other night. Here is the recipe for the glaze…

2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbs. honey
2 Tbs. Dijon mustard
2 tsp. grated lemon zest

Mix the above. Salt and pepper both sides of your fish. Place the above glaze in a oven proof dish that has a small amount of oil. Add the glaze and roll both sides of the fish coating well. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 min.


Off to the sewing room.
